I've been here a number of times and overall, it's been kind of average. Not the best, not the worst. Forget decor, it's just a plain straight-ahead family type restaurant. Service was good, but I'm having trouble finding the value for what we've paid lately. Last visit, the fish and coleslaw were good, the battered shrimp and fries were not... More

The owners themselves are usually and are very positive folks. The food is great, always fresh and tasty. You certainly get your money's worth.

We were told this was the best fish and chips in the Comox valley: if that's the case, go for pizza instead.

Very attending staff, great Apple Pie and Fish and Chips...not greasy, if something isn't right they accommodate you., Would recommend...ask for the Cod & Chips...more tasty than just their whitefish

We tried this restaurant based on published reviews, but were very disappointed. Contrary to expectations, it was extremely average -- in terms of decor, service, and food. Not a terrible or an unpleasant experience, but one that we will not use our time or money to ever repeat.
